Collaboration Over Competition

In this blog post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on why collaboration over competition is important. Working together is always a win-win!

Collaboration Over Competition

Collaboration is the action of working with someone to produce or create something.  When I think of women work with women I think of the relationship that Tot of totallytot and I have.

I meet Tot early 2015 and we’ve been friends ever since.  It’s hard as an adult woman to find new friends.  Especially when that person is suppose to be your competition.

Tot and I are both Chicago lifestyle bloggers that focus on plus size fashion.  Instead of hiding things from each other.  We share tips and leads with each other.  Whether it’s a forwarded email or a quick text we have found it important to keep each other in the know.

It’s important to create a tribe!  I’ve found that sharing with other bloggers I have received way more than I’ve given. That’s a great way to keep money flowing into my blog.  With referrals from my bloggers boos I’ve been introduced to a lot on new brands.


Collaboration Over Competition | 3 easy ways

  1. Like and comment on each other post.
  2. When a brand is looking for additional influencers give their information.
  3. Be their cheerleader!  Attend events they are hosting as well as sharing their events on social media.

Collaboration over competition is always the way to go.  It’s not had to support others!
